agreement. a hamas official told reuters they had come close but the talks "must wait until tomorrow." now this is morsi's real debut on the world stage. he rose from his position as head of the engineering department at a cairo university to become president of egypt last year. it's really an intriguing story. morsi replaced, as you know, president hosni mubarak who had been in power for three decades and was one of israel's few allies in the region and morsi ran as the muslim brotherhood's candidate and he promised to implement islamic law. but analysts say that he's not really a true religious fundamentalist. that he had to adopt those positions to fend off competition from islamist extremists. and his background does seem to suggest that he may be more of a moderate. at least he spent eight years in the united states. he's earned a ph.d. in engineering from usc before he joined the faculty at cal state university north ridge. in fact, two of his five children were actually born during that time and those kids are
hamas and israel has stretched into a seventh day. israeli forces fight to put an end to months of indiscriminate rocket attacks on israeli civilians. while a cease-fire was said to be eminent, it looks as though diplomacy and the fighting will continue for at least another day. this evening, secretary of state hillary clinton joined the parade of diplomats trying to end the crisis which so far has taken at least 130 palestinian and 5 israeli lives before talks began with israeli prime minister netanyahu secretary clinton defined america's bottom line for the crisis. >> it is essential to de-escalate the situation in gaza. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> eliot: the secretary also said any short-term solution should lead to something more lasting. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> eliot: bu
or so here. he was the head of the militant wing of hamas so israel felt justified. many civilians were killed in different gaza attacks. the israeli defense sources bragging about it on twitter: >> not only that, on you tube, they put out a video of the actual hit. now, the person inside this car is going to die just so you know. i'm giving you warning there. in fact, there's two people standards inside the car photograph for hamas was also killed in that strike. now if that wasn't enough, more insult to injury, back on twitter: >> now sure, hitting hamas's hillmilitary many would find that understandable. that hit is certainly an open question. civilians getting killed, i hope would have a lot less support. now one civilian killed was an 11-month-old boy. he is the son of b.b.c. average reporter jihaddal musharawi. that picture's now been seen around the world. i have a young son and it affected me significantly. here's a report from bbc. >> my sister in law was killed along with my son brother and my other son were wounded. what did my son do to die like this? what was his mistake? h

because their children are safe. hamas and israel have agreed to a ceasefire for the moment. each side launched about 1500 strikes, and there were violent protests in the west bank in which one palestinian was killed. the final straw was the bombing of a crowded tel-aviv bus today that blast injured 21 israelis. late today secretary of state hillary clinton joined egypt's foreign minister to announce a ceasefire agreement which says . . . >> jennifer: secretary clinton praised the leadership but says there is still work to be done. >> egypt's new government is assuming the responsibility and leadership that has long made this country a cornerstone of regional peace, as i discussed today with the others there is no substitute for a just and lasting peace. >> jennifer: lasting peace will not come easy though, the region is still extremely fragile, and israel's military reported that the palestinians have launched five rockets since thesis fire began, and in gaza city palestinians shut guns in the air, and meanwhile mosques across the region congratulated pales
. in retaliation hamas fired over 270 rocket into israel killing three. israel responded by bombing suspected rocket launching sites as well as other suspected terrorist sites killing 16. israel has also begun moving troops toward the border and called up 30,000 reservists, muscle flexing to raise the specter of a ground invasion. president obama called benjamin netanyahu to pledge his support and morsi to assert israel's right to condemn itself and president morsi did not agree. saying today and i quote... >> eliot: to discuss the growing violence in gaza, i'm joined by our good friend, recently re-elected congressman jerry nadler of new york. sir, always a pleasure to have you on the show. >> good to be here. >> eliot: this is an escalation and a moment of tension that's unparalleled in recent years with one of the strikes, the missiles from gaza actually landing in a suburb of tel aviv. what is the next step to hopefully de-escalate this crisis? >> i'm not sure. the next step, if it is going to be deessa cated th

's paling in comparison to what's going on in the middle east. fighting between israel and hamas continued again yesterday. the palestinian death toll is now up near 100 and many of those people are civilians. president obama and bill clinton both took to the phones yesterday, speaking with benjamin netanyahu of israel and president mohammed morsi of egypt. the main word they're using is de-escalate telling the two nations to scale back the violence but so far neither side is willing to cease-fire unless the other will bend to their demands. egypt does have a peace tree with israel which is why that country could be the key in putting a stop to the violence. more john fuglesang coming up after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an viewer created ad message for little caesars who proudly salutes united states veterans everywhere. >> clarksville is a small town on the tennesse/kentucky boader and it is a really great place to raise a family. my name is lloyd allard i was a chief officer in the special forces, i was in the army
: the strike to take out the hamas leader, is this related to syria? was this a long-planned strike. there has been escalation of firing from gaza. >> taking out the wing commander of hamas he has blood on his hands. there is an enormous amount of rockets, inappropriately illegally being fired by hamas into israel. israel has the right to retailate. they need to retaliate and they need to punish hamas until they stop firing indiscriminately into israel. >> eliot: is this going to be all right you got our guy. we're going to stop. game over. >> actually what i'm afraid of, this could escalate. but i don't think it will lead to a 2008 war. >> eliot: not a big encroachment. >> the israels have an election coming up and netanyahu could very well be in danger electorally if he doesn't take a strong stand because there are so many people in israel who are being subjected to rocket attacks that the israels must respond. >> eliot: we have to leave it there. marc ginsberg, expert on all things middle eastern. we have viewfinder next. 15 succeeded in setting their houses on fire. at christmas, there wa
or is it possible to dee fuse what is going on right now between israel and hamas welcome. >> it's very difficult because the landscape, you know, surrounding gaza has been transformed since we went through this kind of spasm in in 2008. and every potential player here is having to recalculate and it's very difficult to control this. the united states has some cards to play but they're not very strong cards. >> eliot: what role is egypt playing? morsi has been hard to understand. is he going to be an useful advocate in getting hamas to back down or is going to have to play to his domestic audience and continue to back up hamas. >> he has got a very difficult political road to play. he has competing constituencies, and interests. as i know, you know, there is a potential opportunity here. president obama prior to the election was very candid in saying morsi is not yet friend, not adversary. there is an opportunity to find a way to work together to help keep a lid on this crisis. to me i see a parallel between the dilemma that morsi is presented and the dilemma that governor chris christie was pres
-like and pragmatic role in brokering a cease-fire between israel and hamas. but on the domestic front it was viewed by many as a power grab as morsi faced accusations that he was trying to turn himself into the new mubarak. president morsi assumed total legislative power. in a fumble decree last week morsi unilaterally declared that the decisions he made would not be subject to appeal in any court or oversight by any authority, granting him nearly dictataldictate really power today after meeting with the judge the supreme judicial court morsi agreed to narrow the scope of his decree. joining me now is aaron david miller former middle eastern adviser for democratic and republican administrations. thank you for joining us. >> a pleasure. >> eliot: so was this a power grab or was it smart to keep the courts from derailing the egyptian move to democracy. >> i think it was both. morsi clearly faced challenges. many of these judges are mubarak holdovers, determined to create common balance. any judiciary would in a democracy, to ascribe to the my way or the highway approach. morsi was testing to see what
two weeks between israel and hamas and also the arab spring in its manifestation again in the developments we see in egypt. it is very, very important for us to try to get a handle on these things because of the importance of this region and the key role that the united states should and must continue to play. nobody can replace us in leading that region and in trying to find some way out of this chaos. >> eliot: you begin specifically with the u.n. vote. does that help or hurt? does it make more or less likely the possibility of reigniting genuine peace negotiations? does it help the palestinian authority and abbas by re-establishing his credibility as an individual with whom israel can and must negotiate or is this just some continuing unfolding of jockeying that leads us nowhere in particular? >> it is a symbolic vote as you said. there is much jockeying in the u.n. general assembly. that is not where peace will be decided in the middle east. on the other hand, it is -- popular opinion around the world is
because hamas and other militant groups are using these much lower-tech weapons to launch out of gaza. you mentioned the patriot system, there is the next stage of the patriot which is known as the arrow defense system but those deal with much higher tech and bigger missiles. >> jennifer: so is -- because it has been so successful will israel use a combination of the two? is the patriot missile, if it only has a 10% successful interception rate, are these more advanced patriot missiles up to the level of the iron dome? >> even though the patriot missile defense system made a lot of headlines as you mentioned the shootdown rate was much lower. but another system has been developed, called the arrow defense system, which even though it has not been tested in a similar way as the gulf war, is expected to be much more effective. >> jennifer: do you think other nations or even nato could replicate the iron dome technology and what impact would that have in the region if both sides had interception and maybe missiles not landing in populated areas on either side? >> r

are the winners and losers in this? morsi, clinton abbas, a hamas. >> a peace agreement that israel has ruled with hamas. when we winners everyone, both the united states and israel today are praising egypt and their central role in getting this agreement done. >> michael: you know, film you said it's not quite a peace agreement. just today the today of the fuse, wetruce, we learned of a bombing. >> ten people have been hurt and there are others who suffer trauma. the bus behind me exposed. a man placed some sort of i.e.d. on it, shattered the glass blowing everything out. eyewitnesses telling us they heard screamings. many thought it was a rocket but there were no sirens. >> michael: it reminds us of the death toll, 140 palestinians have died. five israelis have died. the seriousness of this conflict cannot be underscored. tim, i want to say when you talk about morsi and his involvement and how america is going to egypt again now. is this going to define a new relationship tri-lateral there? >> yes, the united states wants a durable peace in the region, and i think that any durable peace has
think from the american perspective, egypt is a necessary broker. they consider hamas a terrorist entity and so the u.s. does not directly deal with hamas. in order to be a broker between both sides the u.s. necessarily needs to deal with egypt. >> yeah. you know, john mccain, we see hillary clinton there. john mccain had another opinion about who he thinks should be over in the middle east talking to these people. here's john mccain. >> find someone even as high ranking frankly as former president bill clinton. to go and be the negotiator. i know he would hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker. >> you know, when we hear mccain say something like this saying something nice about a democrat, then, of course, he has to go and say one more thing and here's john mccain once again. >> if this god forbid conflict escalates, again, it is a sign of american weakness throughout the region. before in crises, henry kissinge

suffering from the bombardment of hamas. these were themed that caused the jewish community in south florida in particular to understand and remember why they supported the president in such large numbers in 22008. >> jennifer: all right. it is interesting because i think there's a momentum shift we're seeing as well. romney was in florida today, and the political director told reporters on a conference call that quote romney will win election day by double digits in florida. so why would romney be campaigning in a state that he is going to win by double digits. do you think this is all just bluster? >> oh, it is bluster. and i think he was in florida because of the potential damage on his stance on fema. florida more than anywhere else are particularly sensitive when it comes to national disasters. and floridians are very aware of the positives and some of the shortcomings of federal relief. but they do appear rate the good that can come from a federally managed system. and that's what we are seeing this week throughout the mid-atlantic. and governor's position w
